Do I need the link headset cable to download games onto the headset or can it be done some other way

    I assume you are talking about the Quest. No, you download games wirelessly through the store on the headset itself. The link cable allows you to run apps on the computer and use the Quest as the display. The games you play using link are running on the computer and are not transferred to the headset itself.

    An electronics device's warranty is provided by the manufacturer, in this case Oculus, regardless of whether it's been bought from Oculus or from an authorized dealer such as Amazon. The only Amazon warranties that I'm aware of are on Amazon branded goods such as their luggage.

    Both Oculus and Amazon have a 30 day returns policy, if you've changed you mind or the goods aren't what you wanted for whatever reason, provided it hasn't been damaged by yourself. The difference being if bought from Amazon, you'd return to Amazon rather than to Oculus.
